Djibouti’s President Ismail Omar Guelleh, who was on a state visit here, appeared before the joint houses of the Ethiopian parliament Thursday afternoon.
Delivering a brief remark, Guelleh said that the tie between Ethiopia and Djibouti is “a symbol of the long-standing relations of the countries”.
He said the two nations are deepening their overall bilateral relations.
The president urged members of both houses to contribute their share towards further enhancing the relationship.
The Ethio-Djibouti Railway Line, which was closed for a decade and has recently begun operations anew, is a testament to the long-standing bilateral ties, and underlines the commitment of the countries to foster and deepen their unique bond, the president added. (Compiled By Yonas Abiye)
